There are more people in the world than ever, and while we may not be seeing many people who are the same age as we are, the number of people with similar life experiences is growing rapidly.
There’s also a growing number of older people who don’t have the opportunity to see a lot of younger people singing or playing music.
“As a young person, you don’t know the music or see the performances, but when you do, it’s not as exciting as it could be,” said Dan Smith, an Australian singer-songwriter who was born in 1970.
“When you have these opportunities and don’t get to see them you can become really attached to your experiences.”
He was born and raised in New Zealand and spent most of his early life in Sydney, New South Wales.
His dad, Steve, was a teacher in a music school and he moved to New Zealand when he was six years old to study at the University of Auckland.
When he was seven, Steve had a major heart attack, leaving him with a very limited vocabulary and limited musical talent.
He had to live in the hospital and worked part time for two years.
When Steve died in 2009, he left Dan a note with his music career.
“It was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to do this?
You’ve got it’,” Dan said.
“I went back and listened to it and I loved it.”
Dan said he felt like he had to keep going and keep learning.
“The songs are so beautiful and it’s like a little piece of myself, but it’s just my imagination.
It’s just like my dream, it never occurred to me that I would have to live this way.”
His new album, “Older Singers”, is about finding inspiration in older people and his music reflects this.
“I felt like it was the right time to bring it out,” he said.
“It was just really important for me to show people that I was young and that I could write songs and be young and still be singing.”
My songs are really about how I feel and the things that I feel.
He also wanted to reach a younger audience.””
There was this huge feeling of, ‘I’ve just got to be myself,'” he said, adding that he wanted to explore a more “international” and “world-building” perspective in his music.
He also wanted to reach a younger audience.
“For me, the songs I’m writing for younger people are the ones that I really want to sing,” he explained.
“They’re very much about trying to reach out to a younger crowd and not trying to be too preachy.”
Dan’s music has been voted one of the best of 2017 by Australian listeners, and he has had many international and international fans.
In 2015, he was featured in the Australian Music Awards and received an award from the Human Rights Commission of Australia for his work in music.
Dan has been touring Australia with his band The Taming of the Shrew and toured the United States and the United Kingdom last year.
He also recently performed in Japan.
“We’ve been really fortunate that we’ve been able to get our first tour to Japan,” he told Recode.
“We’re going for four weeks in Japan, so we’re doing a couple of shows a week.”
And then we’re going back to Australia for two more weeks.
“That’s going to be a long three months.”
He also hopes to tour Europe soon and Australia this year.
“The reason why I’m going back is because I think the time is right,” he added.
“And I think I’m still going to find myself in a really good place.
I’m doing the right thing.
I have a lot more music to play, I have more things to do, so I’m not going to just leave it.”
